You have two invoices to pay. Both are for exactly the same amount and overdue. You receive a reminder email from both creditors. One’s a normal (yawn) reminder, but the other has the sentence
“We will call you later this week to see if there’s anything that you need.”
Now, who are YOU going to pay if you only have enough to pay ONE of them?
Think about it:
People don’t like to be called on the phone about overdue accounts. Don’t you agree? So, use this to your advantage. “We will call you later” is simple, short, polite and perceived to be helpful but, most of all, it’ll get YOUR account paid more quickly than others, providing there are no other influencing factors in play.
